I'm gonna X2 on this! I'd get another block and some Eddy heads and call it 455 SDlite! I had a 72 455HO I miss - traded it for a 69 with Butler heads on 455 that car is still alotta fun even though a good friend of min owns it now
69 RS/Z 302 VE3 Daytona

I wouldn't listen to those magazines. They try to sound important by talking about the secrets that they hear from top level racers. Those racers are talking about pistons that are so high that they just about fill the entire chamber right to the top. Pistons with modest type domes will have the same or better flame travel than flat tops. Unless you have pistons that are designed for 12:1 or more I wouldn't worry about flame travel.
